It comes to my mind that an appropriate name for this element woud be  "flag".
Putting a flag somewhere in a document does not emphasise but draws
attention to this part (as in Google or when manually highlighting
some passages or words in document).

This name best describes its usage and avoids confusion with EM and STRONG.

Cheers,
